This symbol indicates that a GV STRATUS Rundown channel is no longer connected to its corresponding channel on the media server. Check the following possible problems; as you cannot remotely control the media server while this symbol is present:

  • Playout channels on the media server are not set to use the remote AMP protocol.
  • If you are using RS-422, there is no physical serial/network cable connection between GV STRATUS Rundown and the media server used for playout.
  • If you are using Ethernet channel connections, the entries for media server or Server Channel Name are not set correctly in the GV STRATUS Rundown Channel Configuration.
  • COM ports are set incorrectly in the GV STRATUS Rundown Channel Configuration.
